I decided to opt for their Stonehenge trip based on the positive reviews that they have and they didn't disappoint. The purple coloured buses arrived to pick us up outside the Huntsman right on time. Our driver cum guide Chris did a great job of telling about the locations that we passed through and of arranging our tickets and audio guides. The trip is appropriately timed and quite punctual. However the seats of the bus are a bit narrow.

I had compared travelling to Stonehenge from Bath by ourselves with taking a tour group and it was cheaper to go with a group. Scarper was the only company I could find going from Bath. The booking was easy to make online and gave all details needed. The bus was easy to find, only purple bus in the lot, and it was a smaller sized group so you wouldn't get lost in a big crowd. Our driver was Chris, who was very pleasant and welcoming. He pointed out little landmarks and facts as we drove past and through little towns on the way. It was very easy when we arrived, Chris organised our wrist bands and audio guides and directed us where to go. He made it very clear what time we would be departing so there was no confusion in the group. On the way back he provided some more information in the form of a display folder to pass around. A very enjoyable trip and would highly recommend.
The only thing I could suggest would be to increase the time at Stonehenge by about 30 minutes to allow people time to walk from the visitors centre to Stonehenge if they wanted. By the time we listened to the audio guide, and we did not spend time dilly dallying, we didn't think we would have enough time to walk back and still get to see the exhibition properly so had to catch the shuttle bus both ways.

A very good prompt tour. Pickup was at a good location. Dan the driver was friendly and knowledgeable. Two hours at Stonehenge was just the right amount of time. Highly
recommended !

Scarper tours are extremely efficient and organized. Our driver John did more than just drive us to Stonehenge from Bath and back - he explained about what we were seeing during the drive, he took care of our tickets and explained all logistical info that we needed to know to prepare us for our visit to Stonehenge upon arrival. The allocated time is perfect. To be honest it was too hot and there were too many visitors on site to make the visit a memorable one (and the journey takes almost an hour to and an hour back) but the logistics and preparations for the excursion were superb. If you're staying in Bath and would like to visit Stonehenge, we would suggest you try Scarper tours because they truly offer value for money.
